Press Release Contact: Kyle W. Kempf, Green Century Capital Management,, (617) 482-0800

SAN FRANCISCO, September 10, 2018 – Green Century is proudly reaffirming its commitment to fossil fuel free investing to coincide with the Divest-Invest press conference focused on “How the Moral Call to Divest Became a Matter of Fiduciary Duty.”

As the first family of diversified and responsible fossil fuel free mutual funds in the U.S., Green Century has championed fossil fuel free investing since before the divestment movement’s founding.

“Fossil fuel free investing is the bedrock of Green Century,” said Leslie Samuelrich, president of Green Century Capital Management. “Our investors are guided by both their moral and financial compass. They want to save for their futures by investing in the companies that will help us achieve a more sustainable world.”

All of Green Century’s mutual funds are and will continue to be fully divested from: companies that explore for, extract, process, refine, or transmit coal, oil, and gas; companies that burn fossil fuels to make electricity; and companies with carbon reserves.

The divestment movement has seen remarkable growth since its founding. In just the last four years, the assets under management committed to divestment have grown from $50 billion to more than $6 trillion.

The Divest-Invest Philanthropy press event is being held during the week of the Global Climate Action Summit.
